eFX Inc. Releases First Marvel “The Avengers” Collectibles
September 25, 2012

The Avengers assemble today on DVD and Blu-ray, and eFX Inc. is excited to be releasing the first in its long-awaited series of Marvel superhero collectibles! Today at efxcollectibles.com, eFX begins releasing its Captain America posters and trading cards — exact replicas of those seen on screen in Captain America: The First Avenger and The Avengers.

Three designs of replica posters seen in Captain America: The First Avenger are available at $20 each starting today. They’re created directly from the original digital files used to create the on-screen props, which reflect the WWII roots of Captain America and recall the vibrant visual look of the Joe Johnston-directed film.

Also from eFX, Captain America trading cards from The Avengers include 10 different cards, each of which comes in two different versions: The “near-mint” cards created during the height of Captain America’s popularity (which Agent Coulson searched for and wanted Captain America to sign) … and a bloodied version that Nick Fury showed to The Avengers to convey Agent Coulson’s unwavering loyalty. The trading cards will be available as of Oct. 16, and will include the story of these props and a certificate of authenticity.

Prices listed do not include shipping, handling and California sales tax, where applicable.

On Tuesday, Oct. 9, eFX will also begin accepting pre-orders for its first full-scale, screen-accurate Marvel prop replicas. The first items available for pre-ordering will be Thor’s helmet and his hammer, Mjolnir. The helmet is from the Thor movie, and Mjolnir is a replica of the prop used in The Avengers. Both prop replicas astounded fans when they were previewed at WonderCon and Comic-Con.

Ordering details (including deposit information) will be available at eFX’s website beginning Oct. 9. Captain America posters, shown below along with other eFX Marvel prop replicas, are available beginning today online at eFXCollectibles.com.

Daniel Pickett
Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
